I’d had the idea for this one bouncing around for most the past year, finally got around to it this December. Originally I was thinking I might try taking it to a local store to sell, but it had a few more flaws than I was happy with for that situation, and I had no other ideas for my mother’s Christmas present this year, so its staying in the family.
Floating top hall table with hickory top and walnut inlay and legs, capped with more hickory for the feet. I did the inlays on my cnc router, but it has a little flex that resulted in gaps I had to fill with epoxy mixed with walnut dust. Its subtle, but I can see the lines it left, which bugs me a bit. Finish is just 3 coats of generic floor poly buffed out to 1000 grit after a few days of curing.
The alternating waves to the stretcher were done partly to tie into the inlay, but also because they hide any variation in their curves. I didn’t feel like making a template and routing them all to match, so I just bandsawed and sanded them similarly, the alternating waves hides any discrepancy there quite nicely.
